    Winter Breaks And Slow Holidays With Inntravel

    As the nights grow colder and darker, and we slowly edge our way towards the Christmas period, I know I’m not the only one wishing they could book a last minute getaway before the chaos starts. Owing to my love of travelling and pimping out my Instagram feed in holiday pictures, my love of exploring has given me the perfect opportunity to work in collaboration with Inntravel, a slow winter holidays company who have been turning slow travel dreams into a reality for travellers since the 1980s. They wanted to find out what’s my ‘slow holidays’ bucket list – so without further ado, here we go. Are any of these on…

    Visiting Auschwitz And Exploring Krakow

    I have something exciting to share with you. I also have something harrowing to show you. Visiting Krakow, Poland stretched my emotions as far as it possibly could. One day we were walking along the cobbled streets feeling like the happiest people in the world eating kebabs and dining out in the Old Square. Other days, we were walking in silence through concentration camps – Auschwitz and Bireknau, not even beginning to comprehend the horrors of how many people were killed there between 1940 – 1945. Words really cannot justify the reality of the situation but for anyone who is thinking of visiting in future, I hope I have documented…

    The White Horse Inn Review – Duns Tew

    The White Horse Inn was booked in my blogger diary for months, so when the weekend finally came to head off for a romantic weekend, I raced home from work, speedily packed my bags and set off with Josh for some much needed relaxation. This beautiful little country inn is located a short 20 minute drive away from Bicester Village which is very dangerous, considering all I wanted to do was shop for a whole new designer wardrobe. Nevertheless, we resisted the urge and checked into our snug room at the Inn before heading down to the bar for some Friday night drinks and some well earned ‘down time’. The…

    Places To Add To Your Travel Bucketlist

    – sponsored content –  Shark diving is my ultimate #1 activity on my bucket list. I’m deadly serious. It’s something I’ve dreamt about doing ever since I was old enough to swim. I imagine no other experience on Earth could make you feel as vulnerable to your surroundings yet so at peace with nature. An exhilarating swim with some of our sharp toothed friends could be enough to make anyone cry, but for me it’s something on my to-do list that I’m itching to tick off. The strange thing is, I have an irrational fear of sharks at the bottom of the swimming pool. Don’t tell me I’m the only one! I’ve put some serious…

    A Blogger Trip To Tuscany, Italy

    Last week, I jetted off to Italy for the experience of a lifetime. I was recently asked if I would like to review a 4* converted mansion in the Tuscan hills. This meant relaxing next to the swimming pool, eating Italian food and drinking various glasses of wine… just for the fun of it. Una Palazzo Mannaioni sits comfortably at the top of the hill in Montaione and is one of 500 ancient buildings in Tuscany. The hotel thrives on offering guests a relaxing stay, and they certainly lived up to their promise, demonstrating quality service throughout. The hotel is split into two parts: the original medieval mansion and the new modern…
